With the recent reveal of the first Defenders trailer, Marvel is getting the hype train started for their next great hero team-up. This one featuring the four main heroes of the Marvel/Netflix world, mainly Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. But a mystery that is slowly growing is about the villains of the piece. Because though we know that Sigourney Weaver will be playing the lead villain known as Alexandra, and that Elektra will be involved too, we don’t know how it’ll tie together.
According to Luke Cage himself, Mike Colter, the villains will actually tie together all the series, and you’ll find out that what’s happened to them isn’t an accident:
“The villains that we’re dealing with are a combination of several entities, um, and they all have something to do with our separate stories that have played out in each of our own individual series,” Colter said. “So this has been going on for a while. It wasn’t obvious each individual series, but in this series you’ll find out that the things that happened to all of us basically were all because of one entity and that’s what’s gonna kind of tie things together and then we’ll see that, we’ll understand that, and before you know it, eventually we’ll fight together or not.”
Now, The Hand is the obvious answer, as they’ve been present since Daredevil, however, that may be too simple of an answer. You can check out Colter’s full interview below:
